Mountain Home Cemetery in Kalamazoo was once reserved for the more prominent residents. This begs the question, who was J.J. Perin? 

On a recent outing, searching for unique and interesting things around the Kalamazoo area led us to Mountain Home Cemetery just North of Henderson Castle. From a distance we could see this massive obelisk atop one of the hills. On closer inspection of this nearly 30 foot tall monument, the only thing engraved was the name J.J. Perrin. no other grave markers near by with that name and online research turned up  nothing. Who knows who J.J Perrin was? Tell us in the comments below.
